What We Do
Whether you are an individual leader or a member of an organisation sourcing coaching for leaders, we have a programme to suit you. For teams, we also provide on-site facilitative workshops around career management and personal effectiveness. Programmes range from one-off sessions through to 12 months intensive support and can be delivered on or off-site at a time to suit busy diaries.
We act as a confidential thinking partner for new and established leaders. We work with the premise that “what got you here, won’t get you there”. We facilitate a collaborative conversation, gently challenging your perspective and approach, to elicit new ways of working, thinking and being.
The coaching focus is a usually a mix of competencies, skills and strengths development required of a 21st century leader:
Understanding core self - your values and purpose as well as thinking, feeling and behavioural style and how this supports/hinders results
Strategic thinking, execution and implementation
The relational self - identifying and being with stakeholders; conflict and influencing style
Assessing current culture and how you as a leader impact
Building high performing teams
Leading change and what it means to truly bring about change in complex systems
We blend the above with ‘bringing the system into the room’ and supporting leaders with an increasingly ambiguous and relational approach to leadership.
Every context is different; working with us is a safe space to explore your mindset, your strengths and shadow side, as well as meaning making, identity and creating narrative. We do this, not through a specific model or framework, but by guiding a co-created view of the future.
With over 30 years' experience of career coaching and career redesign, we know what matters when senior leaders are looking for a new opportunity or promotion.
Typical programmes include:
Career direction and goal setting
Analysing your career to date - Creating a compelling future career narrative
Defining your competencies, strengths, and drivers
Designing and producing self-marketing materials (often based on the above mentioned exploration and analysis)
Job hunting strategies - Networking skills - Social Media - Personal Brand
Succeeding at interview, psychometric testing and presentations
When you achieve your ideal role, we also work with you to on-board you effectively into your new role.
Our clients tell us they are increasingly working in environments where they are expected to do more with less, make decisions quickly, and have little or no thinking time to explore alternative approaches.
